The Washington Old Time Fiddlers Association (WOTFA) isn’t limited to fiddle musicians and they have jam sessions twice a month at the Sequim Prairie Grange Hall. In addition to the fiddle, banjo, bass and guitar above, musicians played bass, mandolins, harmonicas, piano and a concertina.
WOTFA began in 1965 with 10 members. There are now 1700 statewide. The organization is dedicated to preserving, promoting, and perpetuating the art of old time fiddling and the associated acoustic instruments’ arts and skills and music. They perform locally at retirement centers, nursing homes, the county fair, and other local events and donations from these performances support their youth scholarship program.
